Spanish utility Naturgy Energy Group SA (BME:NTGY) said today that it has commissioned the 35.2-MW Torozos II wind farm it built in Spain’s northwestern region of Castile and Leon.
The facility, which cost over EUR 39 million (USD 38.9m) to build, is made up of 16 turbines installed in Valladolid province where Naturgy operates seven other relatively new wind farms.
Torozos II is expected to generate around 101.5 GWh per year, or enough to meet annual power consumption needs of over 29,100 homes, the group said.
The commissioning of the latest project helped Naturgy boost the installed renewable energy capacity in Castile and Leon to over 780 MW. The company operates 24 wind farms, nine hydroelectric plants and one solar PV farm in the region, it added.
